Opening Excel files

For some time now, whenever I open an Excel file (named in
the format "text1 text2 text3.xls" by double clicking on
the file itself in Explorer, or a link to the file, instead
of via the Excel open dialog, once the program loads it
gives me an error message that says:

"file "text1.xls" cannot be found"

if I press OK, I then get:

"file "text2.xls" cannot be found"

If I press OK again, I get:

"file "text3.xls" cannot be found"

If I press OK again, it then opens the original file.

Whilst I can still access the original file by going
through this process, it is a little annoying.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this and make Excel just
open the file straight away when I double-click it??

Thanks

Dave
